When: 10PM EST on Thursday April 28th (7PM PST)
Where: #NerfHaven IRC Channel on irc.Darkmyst.org
 
Topic: How do you get new people involved in Nerf? What do you do to bring in new players or get your friends involved in Nerf?
 
Alternate Topic: Following up from the front page update, do you feel superstock-style blasters and ammo are viable in an NIC war, where many people are using homemade darts and blasters? Would you be more or less likely to attend an NIC war that had a few superstock rounds mixed into it?
 
 
If you would just like to use a real IRC client instead of the web interface linked above, I recommend downloading Pidgin or mIRC. mIRC is a Windows IRC client.  Pidgin is a mutli-protocol chat client that works on most platforms and connects to google chat, AIM, IRC and others (facebook chat support available with 3rd party plugin).  There are also plenty of IRC clients for Android and iOS.  Just enter irc.Darkmyst.org as the server and join the #NerfHaven channel.  You may also take a look at IRCCloud, which is a web based service that lets you stay logged in to the IRC channel even when you're not online.

Too bad this is at 4 am for me...
I don't think these chats will ever be at another time?

If they continue to be as popular as the first one was, we could probably find reason and time to host one midday on a weekend (so I guess evening for you).

 

I'm looking forward to this one. There was a lot of good discussion in the last chat. I would like to add that the IRC is there all the time, and that people are usually lurking. If there are only a couple people around, you probably won't get a reply immediately, but you will get a reply if you stick around long enough. Using a dedicated client instead of Mibbit usually helps with that sticking around part, too. If you want to use a browser service rather than a dedicated application, IRCCloud is decent.

Bumping.  This is still on for 10PM EST tonight.  I'll be lurking in the IRC channel on and off throughout the day, along with some other NerfHaven members and staff.
